Almost 2 weeks on lithium & I feel good. I prolly could use an lil more but I am constipation! I started colace (docusate sodium). Is that a side effect to lithium :|?

Almost 2 weeks on lithium & I feel good. I prolly could use an lil more but I am constipation! I started colace (docusate sodium). Is that a side effect to lithium :|?

No: Your constipation is coming from your iron supplement. If it is persistent I would also have a thyroid level checked because hypothyroidism can cause constipation. Hypothyroidism is also a potential side effect of lithium but usually after long-term use. About 25% of people who use lithium will eventually develop hypothyroidism. I hope this helps. Best wishes. ...Read more

I was prescribed 10 mg of Baclofen for a back sprain/tightness. Is constipation a common side effect? Will it go away as I take the medication?

Common side effect: Unfortunately baclofen does cause constipation as a side effect in many patients. Cases of intestinal obstruction have been linked to the use of baclofen as well. My recommendation is to either reduce the dose or to visit your GP and change over to an alternative medication such as Orphenadrine.

Constipation side effect from lamictal. Already tried enema and colon prep. Cleared out but back to being full after a week. On stimulants. Advice??

I have constipation as a side effect of anafranil, (clomipramine) is it safe to take prune juice regularly, since it is a stimulant? How much should I take?

It's not a stimulant: In the way amphetamines are; it's a laxative. As for how much you should take, I'd start with 4-6 ounces and adjust upward or downward to an amount that keeps the sluices comfortably open. You may want to keep a rough tally of your consumption because prune juice is a food and does add calories to your diet. ...Read more
